What size boat do I need? Who will be cruising with me? These are questions that you should ask yourself before purchasing a boat. At the end of the Le Boat Boat Ownership programme, you have the option to keep the boat, so make sure you think about the future. We have a ride range of boats within our Horizon fleet to suit your needs.

4. What kind of Captain are you?

If you plan to cruise with others you should take this into account when buying your boat. Each boat has a different specification and layout to suit the needs of you and your crew members. Some of our boats have en-suite cabins to give your guests that extra privacy. 

5. Assess the costs

You might think that owning a boat is costly – especially when annual maintenance costs can cost up to 10% of its purchase price. 

The Le Boat Ownership Programme takes away all these worries, as we handle the maintenance and mooring fees for you. 

Not only that, the initial investment becomes profitable thanks to the guaranteed monthly income and buy-back at the end of the program.
